he's fought it well among conservatives. he's always working for barack obama and there's a scandal around him. i wonder, do you think there's a constituency on the right for an actual privacy interest? >> i'm one of the less liberal conservatives you are going to talk to. the startling thing is there's not enough secret si. i think it's understandable the fbi would want to know that if someone has classified documents whose had an intimate relationship with the cia director, you want to know about that. you might have a leak here. once you discover, it's purely personal, why did it make it into the newspapers at all. in a different time and place, the way it would have been handled, the fbi would have concluded their investigation, shared it with the president. >> they wouldn't just let you know he knows this about you. fighting a bureaucratic battle. >> right now, i'm reading the biography of dwight eisenhower. everyone new of his affair. he talked of divorcing his wife. they said if you do that, you will be fired. if you don't divorce your wife, we will keep it quiet. the preside

freezes because of obama care. >> right. because according to employers like that, it's going to cost these businesses that much more, albeit with affects only about 3% of businesses. still, obama care is already changing the way those businesses hire. and it's not necessarily for the better. so under obama care businesses with 50 or more employees, they've got a choice. they could either hire full-time employees and give them health insurance or face a fine of $40,000 plus $2,000 for each additional worker past 50. what some businesses are doing is they're limiting schedules for hourly workers to below 30 hours a week. meaning they're moving toward hiring part-time workers instead of full-time ones because it would cost them too much. it's something that's really affecting the service industry meaning restaurants and hotels that rely on a high turnover workforce and typically haven't offered health insurance in the past. darden restaurants, the parent company of olive garden and red lobster, reportedly is trying out a plan to hire part-time workers in some of its markets to replace f

. >>> developing now from the white house president obama and congressional leaders right now meeting behind closed doors for negotiations on the so-called fiscal cliff, something that both sides want to avoid but the big question, how much are they willing to give? here's what the president said within the last hour just before the bargaining began. >> our challenge is to make sure that, you know, we are able to cooperate together, work together, find some common ground, make some tough compromises, build some consensus to do the people's business and what the folks are looking for and i think all of us agree on this is action. >> nbc's kristen welker is live at the white house. give us a brief on the expectations going in -- open minded or closed minded from both sides? >> reporter: well, i think both sides are definitely open minded but that is not to say there aren't huge hurdles that they have to get over in order to come to some sort of deal to avoid the fiscal cliff which of course by all accounts if they cannot do that it could lead the economy back into a recession. there is certainly a lo
they will come to an agreement. we don't know exactly what the agreement is. i think president obama is right to stand firm, to stand his ground, and say that any deal is going to have to involve increasing the tax rates on the wealthiest americans. and i think that should be the case. and hopefully the republicans will come around to this. but yet i think the republicans have some good ideas -- >> let's talk about that very quickly, because i've got to wrap, oliver. bill kristol as you know, conservative pundit, weekly standard, sort of dropped a bombshell on sunday when he said that republicans need to fall on their sword. that it's -- it's time that, that they agree to what the democrats want. get this over with. the republicans lost the election. i mean is it time for the republicans to sort of come to the table and give a little bit more? >> well, ultimately what the american people are going to observe is the project in negotiation. negotiations about finding joint value. i agree with richard the election is a time for hope and optimism. and that's what we have. hope on the left with re
portrayed immigrants. so, we get back. then we have the interview that barack obama gave right before the election, where he said that immigration was essentially his top priority after they saw the budget crisis. host: we can read a little bit of that as well. guest: i was shocked when i saw it. it was amusing, because first it was off the record, then it was on the record. if this is your top priority? health care was his top priority in his first term and you saw how you stack up. i covered the immigration bill going to the senate in 2006- 2007, and it was bigger than i could have ever imagined. it turned into this massive conversation that was emotional and complicated. i thought, wow, that is a big issue. host: what barack obama said in that off the record phone call was that the second thing he was confident would get done next year was immigration reform and that he would be very blunt -- "the big reason i will win a second term is because the republican party has so alienated the fastest-growing demographic group in the country, the latino community. i am fairly confident that
begun right. >> reporter: at president obama's inauguration in '09, there were record crowds of close to two million. the inaugural committee opened up the entire national mall for public viewing which they plan to do again on january 21st. >> they're hoping three things make this a little better. first of all construction that was here then is gone. floats are going to be smaller so they'll be able to turn corners easier. and also because it's president obama's second inauguration there will be fewer people on the mall. >> i certainly hope we have good weather because weather definitely affects what takes place on the day of the event. >> reporter: it's always a possibility but everyone here is planning for a topnotch inauguration day. peggy fox, 9news now. >> i remember this well because of frigid cold weather in 1985 president reagan's second swearing-in was held indoors. the parade was canceled. the outside temperature at noon was 7 degrees fahrenheit still cold indoors even. >> for a rough parade. >> this was a big part of that. the old cab center. >>> okay, a week after resignin
. >> stephanie: right exactly. let's dive into the right wing world and see what's doing today. how did obama reach out to these demographics? he reached out through student loans, amnesty programs for younger hispanics. he went and birth control is the biggest thing. for sandra flux to have a prime time speaking role would have been absurd. we have women can afford birth control turn out and say i want free birth control. turns out they are a one issue voter. >> stephanie: now they have right wing women to call other women sluts essentially, so that's fair, yeah. >> caller: and again it really is sustained for the voters. it's not introspection. why does the republican party have a permanent gender gap. why did mitt romney just lose 70% of the latino vote when george bush, you know, got 40% just eight or 12 years ago? i mean, there is no introspection about what are we doing wrong? it's obama's suppressing the vote which is what karl rove claims or these women voters are also selfish. that's why they vote democratic. good luck with turning that ship around. >> stephanie: good luck. laura eng
to approach the fiscal cliff to come to a compromise? >> right, there are a couple of different motmotivations for th meetings. one, to get a sense of the different interests coming from business leaders. also, i think president obama would like to get some of these folks on his side to come up with a balanced approach to deficit reduction. lee saunders will be here afsme. so, he'll be trying to get their prospectives on all of this. >> kristen welker at the white house for us this morning. thank you. >>> tuesday political power panel. >>> it's great to have you all here. i know that the washington post has been covering the story, the e-ma e-mail smear story with general allen. as far as we know, no everyday of security leaks. lots of big bombastic headlines, this today on the "daily news." in the line of booty. showing jill kelley, this woman in tampa. what are you hearing about the investigation as it moves forward? this is say lashs. we haven't heard anything that's threatening to national security. >> it's reality tv meets the cia meets the military. this is a story that i think will cont
a big thing in america right now. what it means to be muslim-american. a lot of people think obama is muslim, and they use that -- >> a significant percent. >> it's scary. not only is he muslim, but they use that as a way to sort of undermine him somehow or, you know, delegitimatize him some n some way which is always a weird thing as a muslim to have my religion used as a way to delegitimatize the president. you know? yeah, this play sort of deals with a lot of that stuff. it's a very brave, provocative piece of theater, and i was very excited about it. >> why did you take on this role, because it is so different than what you normally do? >> well, i'm an actor, so i have been doing dramatic stuff and comedic stuff my whole career. ever since i played that pixie in the school play. thank god people know about that now. >> roll the tape. where is that? >> there probably is somewhere. i've been doing both my whole career, so, know, the last six or seven years i have been on "the daily show" and people know me as that guy, that comedian guy, but for me to go do dramatic stuff is not

cliff he's not saying we're going to agree with president obama on anything yet right? >> not yet. at least publicly, he's just reheating the old romney proposal which is if you close deductions, that's where you get your revenue. not from letting the high end tax cuts expire. the high-end tax cuts expire. what obama had been campaigning on and what voters want overwhelmingly. so you know, the administration has actually been fairly optimistic about where boehner is and negotiating with boehner and negotiating maybe with some of the rank and file who are more likely to come to an agreement. maybe go into the senate. and doing this very publicly. they're meeting with a lot of groups with labor groups, with business groups and they've learned their lesson. this idea that in 2011 last year, they could just sit in a room with boehner, hatch out a deal and all would be done. clearly didn't work out very well. after the election, i think the president feels he has a mandate on these issues. if it doesn't w
to everyone. if it's all right for the obama campaign to take credit for it, it's probably fine for paul ryan to notice and i'll also point out that paul ryan is the republican in the romney campaign who said look, let's go campaign among black voters, even though they're not voting for us, because if we're the republican party of opportunity for everybody, that's where we ought to be among the part of the economy that needs help the most. >> david, i want to ask you about something else the congressman said today. abc asked him whether or not the president had a mandate. here's what he had to say. >> the president wins 300 some electoral votes, every battleground state with the exception of north carolina. does barack obama now have a mandate? >> i don't think so, because they also re-elected the house republicans, so whether people intended or not, we've got divided government. >> you don't think it's a mandate here? >> i don't, because then they would have put nancy pelosi in charge of the house of representatives. >> david, do you buy that? democrats gain in both the house and the senate.
it right after the election as a try of making a point. >> president obama is meeting with business leaders on wednesday. do you think this is going to come up? this pushback against obama care? >> sure. we got a hint of how this is playing out when john boehner told abc that it's now the law of the land. for some reason, republicans are still invested in repealing obama care. the problem they are going to confront is that this thing is going forward with or without them. in 2014, new regulations will take place including the banning of discrimination for preexisting conditions. also exchanges in the states will take place whether or not the states say yes or no. the government will step in. so they can either get on board or not. the election was sort of the last legitimate opportunity for them to politically repeal this law. that's now passed. there are other appeals, but it doesn't stand that great of chance. they have to work within the confines of the legislation. >> this is going to be a big issue in the midterms. because it's just going to be on the verge of being fully implemented o

democrats and republicans. republicans are critical. they believed the obama administration should have known right away this was not as spontaneous attack. they want to know who knew what, when. did the president know about the attack? when did his national security team know about the attack? there were people in tripoli and libya with the state department saying there was not enough security concerns because of some of the things going on in libya at the time. good >> the senators made remarks about you in ambassador susan rice. what did they say? >> basically, they do not trust her. they think she should have known better. it looked to be a spontaneous response. they think it is clear there was an organized element. the white house is saying, and today we heard from a democrat who said the intelligence community reaffirmed that was the best information they had at the time. she was repeating the information they provided her. now those intelligence committees, they will hear from david petraeus. what do they want to know from former director petraeus? >> they said this was going to

of the year. right now, president obama is set today to kick off a series of meetings today with liberal and labor leaders. tomorrow he'll meet with business leaders. friday he's scheduled to meet with the top democrat and the top republican in the house and the senate. so that is expected to go ahead as planned. it really has to. this is a looming crisis that needs to be taken care of. there's another issue and that may have to do with president obama's afghanistan policy. questions about how this latest development with general allen could impact that. is the top u.s. commander in afghanistan at this critical time as president obama figures out how to wind down those 68,000 combat troops that are in afghanistan, that are scheduled to come home, by 2014. the thing is, though, zoraida, general joseph dunford, who is already slated to replace allen is having a confirmation hearing on thursday, the same day that allen was supposed to have his. that is going ahead as scheduled. >> all right. brianna keilar live at the white house for us. thank you very much. and also new this morning, the f

are they, because a lot of people would say president obama is least center left, right? but it's all comparative, and compared to governor romney, and i really think the republican party, including those statements that akin and murdoch made, seemed like they were far off from the center. and i also think -- so i'm an independent. i can give advice to both parties. >> and they don't have to take it. >> right. and they don't have to take it. the party of ronald reagan and jack kemp, the party of upward mobility, that didn't seem to be the republican party this year, and now maybe it was because of this very effective attack campaign against mitt romney being capital, 47%, all that stuff, but i think hispanics and asians and a lot of women didn't vote for the republican party, not just if you're hispanic because you think they're anti-immigrant, because it didn't seem like the kind of party that was going to create a country in which you were going to have a chance to rise. it seemed by their own statement and really also by the definition democrats gave them as a more exclusive club.
it a policy not to disagree with tom, but he's 100% right on this, that the first question i would assume will be about general petraeus, general allen and sort of more broadly that situation. the issue i think is what does president obama say. clearly he doesn't want to -- i don't think he wants to make any news, at least not purposely on it. and wants to kind of move off of it as quickly as he can. that's not entirely in his hands, of course. if the first question and then the follow-up and the second question and the third question are all somewhat related to that, it becomes harder, how long do they stay on it, does -- do we talk about how much do we talk about benghazi, how much do we talk about israel. you know, that's what's hard about a press conference. you get your say at the start but the reporters ask their questions and you never know where the story goes from there. >> john harris, you've been in that room also as a former white house correspondent and the president is going to be going into this meeting with the business leaders asking for their advice, their terms of refer

back. then we have the interview that barack obama gave right before the election, where he said that immigration was essentially his top priority after they saw the budget crisis. host: we can read a little bit of that as well. guest: i was shocked when i saw it. it was amusing, because first it was off the record, then it was on the record. if this is your top priority? health care was his top priority in his first term and you saw how you stack up. i covered the immigration bill going to the senate in 2006- 2007, and it was bigger than i could have ever imagined. it turned into this massive conversation that was emotional and complicated. i thought, wow, that is a big issue. host: what barack obama said in that off the record phone call was that the second thing he was confident would get done next year was immigration reform and that he would be very blunt -- "the big reason i will win a second term is because the republican party has so alienated the fastest-growing demographic group in the country, the latino community. i am fairly confident that they will have a great inte

their rights and liberties. the leader of the movement tells politico that mr. obama's re-election is what he called a cat liezing moment for his group's efforts to leave the united states. he insists "this is not a reaction to person but policy." and what they see is a federal government disconnected from its constituents. really? so far no response from the white house. even though the number of signatures far surpasses the 25,000 needed for a white house response. for his part, governor perry says he believes in the greatness of our union and nothing should be done to change it although he says he shares the frustrations a lot of americans have with the federal government. texas is america's second biggest state in both area and population. it was its own nation for ten years before joining the union in 1845. and texas isn't alone here either. a number of other states have also gathered more than 25,000 signatures on secession petitions including louisiana, north carolina and florida. here's the question. should texas be allowed to secede from the union? go to cnn.com/caffertyfile, post a

, that barack obama tapped into in 2008. and remember, all these candidates were running with him this year. a lot of them synthesized their messages with them. sometimes a little bit to the right, sometimes a little bit to the left. but they are coming in as obama democrats into the senate and he's going to have some more forceful people in places like wisconsin, where you have a tammy baldwin replacing the much older -- her core is pretty liberal, but not a champion for liberal causes. maize hirono replacing daniel akaka in hawaii. warren replacing scott brown, what a change from a moderate republican to a very liberal, consumer-focused democrat. and murphy in connecticut replacing joe lieberman. very moderate guy, often voted with republicans. chris murphy, not so much. >> i was up with dukakis and he's working with a cause i help, helping people get legal protection for medical situations. and he was killed for being a liberal. i don't think he can run those kind of campaigns against democrats and say, oh, he's a liberal, that's it, end of argument, you know. >> isn't that part of it, c

to be objective, but it is not right. that is the real issue. why did the obama administration put an actor in a military role, then as the head of the agency evaluate the actions? i think we need a national debate about obama's troop escalation in afghanistan. it was a failure. obama is now committed to withdrawing in 2014. that is generally a good thing, but did we need the true escalation, how well did it work, should we do more? all of that cannot be addressed unless we have a national debate on the policy. am sure general petraeus' issues and other security issues were there, but that is really not the issue here. >> it is interesting. all of this takes place as roger bales is being questioned for the murder of 16 afghans. he is now at fort lewis-mcchord in washington state. >> that is another issue. i am from a military family. i really mind that the events in afghanistan are on stage. we know almost no media reporting on afghanistan. our guys are out there fighting, and if they get killed, it is on page 17. it is not right for a country to be at war unless it is committed to the war.
it won't kill the country. it really won't. i don't understand why republicans don't take obama's offer to freeze taxes for everyone below 250,000. >> bret: all right. there you have it. so. >> two separate points. the first tax rates expire on december 31st. rates are going up for everyone, if nothing happens. if you think republicans can win a showdown on preserving all the current bush tax rates against a president just reelected and gained seats in the senate and the house on just millionaires. good luck. i prefer this as a policy outcome. i don't think it's winnable. i think in the end the republicans will cave. do you cave right thought and get it out of the way. 4% do it for a year little tax hate on the millionaires. get it out of the why is we can can fight about tax reform the big deal that has to happen next year or republicans will cave on december 29th. actual empirical matter. what were the fastest. >> i think '83 to 86 what were the top marginal tax rate. 50%. honestly 35 to 389% by itself is not going to cripple the economy. president obama's proposal. he ran on it let h

goldfarb rights. -- writes. host: there is what president obama said in the past that he might do. we're turning to you outside washington today to get your take on this. can it be part of a grand bargain to avoid a fiscal cliff? bob, your first. caller: i never understood, when you are eligible of age to go on medicare, that that is the simultaneous with social security. i do not understand why those are staggered. for all the republicans out there, i agree, i am a fiscal conservative, that the very least to raise the eligibility age from 65 to 67 in medicare should absolutely be on the table. i would like to say, i do not get why we do not use our institutions, government institutions. to allow for people like myself, i pay about $7,000 per year out of pocket or an individual policy that i do not use. i might use $200 per year out of 7000. if they give that money to medicare so that i can buy into medicare, i am 54, and spend my next however many years prior to going on medicare paying into medicare on an individual policy, i bet you that there are millions like me read the governme
austerity. president obama got it right when he said that companies are awash with cash. what they are missing is enough customers out there to prompt demand and justify them spending more on plants and equipment. businesses need customers. they do not create jobs. austerity is the opposite of income creating sales. it reduces income. tax increases reduce income. spending cuts reduce income. both, i would argue, are the wrong medicine for the economy today. we have seen the effects of austerity. we do not want to follow, these countries over the cliff and gratuitously -- we do not want to follow these countries over the cliff gratuitously. [applause] thank you. >> i want to talk to brad. take the next. >> i have a couple of things to say. our $2 trillion figure is not a recommendation. it is actually a response to the fact that everyone thinks that $4 trillion is what is needed to achieve -- a debt stabilization gold, stabilizing debt to gdp, to keep that from rising faster than the economy, which ultimately is unsustainable -- how long that is sustainable is a question. how f
anything in washington without having some concerns. i believe the right thing for barack obama, and he has an incredible opportunity to lead if he wants to, he chose not to after being elected in 2008. solely focusing on obamacare. he should really take a team of rivals and a page booklet he did with hillary clinton and put john mccain as secretary of state. martha: what you think about that? >> i like john mccain very much. i think john kerry would be a choice before john mccain. but it would probably be a good idea to reach across the aisle. but you are trying to litigate the election. saying that obama did nothing but obamacare, which is not true. let's move forward and realize. unfortunately -- [talking over each other] [talking over each other] >> we have a debt ambassador in libya. [talking over each other] >> is that susan rice's fault? we need to get to the bottom of this. >> you are arguing what we argued a month ago. martha: regardless of what we see here today, there is testimony being given right now. it is honestly a hot issue and remains so. we know that we will hear from gen
